We went to a view point on the green tour and took some pictures of the pigeons (even though it was snowing!)

A different kind of landscape. this is what special about Kapadokya. this place can be reached by hiking from the area nearby, plus this valley is just about 10 minutes walk from Goreme mini town centre.

Just an amazing hike. Aside from the natural beauty of the landscape, the human history that is visible is astounding. The hike isn't overly difficult. So great!

Essentially walk down the hill heading out of town and you'll see the sticks with the pigeons on top on your right. It is then a stunning walk to Goreme.

It was a nice valley to walk around. There are many stones with different shapes and caves to see. The valley is located 10 min from Goreme between Goreme and Open Air museum, so it is good for a short walk/hike.

The jewelry shop takes precedence in terms of time allotment instead of the magnificent vistas offered from Pigeon Valley. I felt that less time should be alloted to the Jewelry Shop for this tour stop. Likewise as in some stops in Cappadocia, shops' locations are better than the view points
